I agree that the head on the MG looks great. In fact, everything from the waist up looks great. Its the legs that kill it for me. Their too small, and make the whole unit look disproportioned. Perhaps if they fixed the legs up a bit, I would think it is great, but until then, I think it just looks funny.

Major updates to the tutorials: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/toolsandtechs.htm
Reorganized stuff so things are easier to find. Also; since I'm still in the midst of redoing videos and such, I figure I can throw up what I have now; which will be easier to deal with than trying to making all the changes once I'm done. Best to do this in increments as I get stuff done. I still have tons more to do...

Updated:
Sanding tutorial with an added video: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/sanding.htm
Seamline tutorial with a complete rewrite: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/seamlines.htm
Basic Airbrushing tutorial with a complete rewrite :http://www.gamerabaenre.com/airbrushing.htm
Advanced airbrushing tutorial: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/airbrushing2.htm


Added:
Primer Tutorial: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/primer.htm
Pearl powder tutorial: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/pearls.htm

More as I progress with my Nu build.... http://www.gamerabaenre.com/hguc_nu_prog.htm

I started out with spray cans. The same techniques for getting got spray can job translates directly over to the airbrush. You just get a lot more control with the airbrush than with the spray cans.

Also, I'm still in the process of updating and adding videos and tutorials, so if you guys have any thing in particular that you want a video of, and if I know how to do what you are interested in, post it up and I'll try to get a tutorial and video of the that process.

ya, spray can is a lot harder to control, and u waste plenty paint as well.
It would be nice to have videos on adding lines or holes into certain surface

For only 1800 yen ? The HG Akatsuki cost more than that.

Saw the same pic... quality is making me highly suspicious though, not to mention the poor make of the image. Looks fake to me.

Seems they're making the 1/100 Boxarts more dynamic, certainly a nice welcome change.

But the art looks convincing, and those registry numbers...
Guess we'll just wait and see.

Bandai is currently releasing their toys under the "45431125" line, they previously release SEED lines under "45431123" and "45431124".

Why the jump to "45431155" now ?

The so called Freedom stabbing effect part is beam part to the tip of Excalibur? I was expecting explosion effect parts on Freedom's torso

Well, it's basically just a gold-plated GM so...

Anyway, is Alva Aron also one of Kunio Okawara's work?
